Strange & Familiar: Architecture on Fogo Island
The Fogo Island Inn sits perched on the shore of this rocky outcrop off the coast of Newfoundland, along with four sculpture-like artist studios. Designed by Gander-born architect Todd Saunders, their bold contemporary lines seem at once alien, and at home, in the ancient landscape. Gorgeously photographed over four seasons as the Inn is being constructed, the film features interviews with Saunders and Zita Cobb, a Fogo Island-born social entrepreneur who spearheaded the architectural commission as a way for the remote island to redefine its place in the world.
